7:01 am
>> announcer: from nbc news this is a special edition of "today." terror in france with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on this friday morning. we were just sitting here in the last couple of minutes trying to figure out what words we can use this morning to set this morning apart from so many other mornings we've begun over the last tyear or two covering terrr events across the world. >> it's shocking to think of a moment of happiness and it's france's fourth of july. >> this is what we know. the latest we know this morning. death toll rose to at least 84 people including a 51-year-old father from texas and his 11-year-old son. >> president obama quickly issued a statement condemning that attack. he offered the u.s.'s help with the investigation and this morning security is being
7:02 am
stepped up across europe. german police increasing patrols along its border with france. belgium adding national security ahead of its own holiday celebrations, which are next week. >> we have complete coverage beginning with bill neely. he's at the scene of this terror attack. bill, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. last night this street was filled with thousands of people gazing up at a fireworks show when a truck, it's still back there behind the white screen, plowed into them at top speed and kept going. we now know that the driver was of tunisian descent. this was an act of terror. a driver on a killing spree. there were celebrations on this seafront. now there's terror as he drives towards dozens of people. eyewitnesses said he zigzagged
7:03 am
from the boardwalk. there was panic. thousands running for their lives including an american. >> i grabbed my fiance and we started running. >> reporter: eyewitnesses recall bodies every ten feet beside strollers. as many as 200 were hit by the truck. dozens died. among them two americans, a father and son from texas sean copeland and his 11-year-old boy brodie. the truck was finally stopped by police bullets. the windshield riddled. the driver killed. amid it all, a mother and daughter from california. >> maybe 20, maybe 30, all very close to each other. very, very fast. >> i was terrified. i put my hands on the baby's mouth so she wouldn't scream. >> reporter: officials say the
7:04 am
driver fired shots from a pistol. he's confirmed as a 31-year-old man from nice. a petty criminal known to police but not to french intelligence. for france's president, another day of terror. all of france, he said, is under the menace of islamic terrorism. president obama sent a message, we stand in solidarity with france, our oldest ally. france is reeling from another massacre. the streets early today almost deserted. >> doesn't seem safe anymore in france. >> reporter: there's no claim yet from any terror group. france mourning amid more horror. >> that was bill neely reporting from nice this morning. >> we're now joined by two americans who witnessed the horrific attack. bob franken, a long time television correspondent now works for nbc news and a doctor who is a physician from denver. good morning to both of you.
7:05 am
doctor, i'll start with you. we were so struck by the way you described what you saw, a tidal wave of people coming toward you. what exactly did you witness last night? >> sure. so i was standing about 15 feet from our immediate left right here. i had been picking up wi-fi in this area for the past several days as i've been here. i remember looking up and seeing a wave of people with completely panic stricken faces running towards me at full steam, screaming at the top of their lungs, trampling baby strollers and my first instinct was to run in that direction. when we took off, we heard gunshots. that made me run even faster. i turned around to make sure i was with the person i was traveling with and luckily we got away safe.
7:06 am
my instinct told me immediately something was terribly wrong. >> bob, some people at the scene thought that tragically this truck had simply lost control and veered into the crowd. you're a trained journalist and reporter. when did you realize this was something much more severe? >> well, as a matter of fact, most people who were witnesses to all this would immediately jump to the conclusion that this was not some sort of horrific accident. they say that the driver very obviously hit the gas. it was not something that he did involuntarily and he seemed to aim according to many, many witnesses for people walking around after the bastille day fireworks display, it was immediately after it was over. he took off and had his deadly run up the promenade des anglais. >> doctor, what did you see in
7:07 am
the aftermath? we've been looking at some of these images and they are almost too much to bear when you look at the human carnage just lying there on the streets. >> sure. yeah, it was a very confusing process for most people. we were part of that first wave of people running forward through the streets and everyone was kind of looking back trying to figure out what was going on. we were literally having to grab people, run, go home, get out of here, because they had no idea what was going on. when i got back to the residence i was staying at, they thought maybe a traffic accident and then news started trickling in and we realized what had happened. >> the fireworks show drew thousands of people. what was it like? >> well, there was a heavy police presence anywhere in the
7:08 am
world these days you have gotten used to that whether it's the united states, whether it's france, whatever country you're in, that's become part of our normal lives. it's been that way certainly since 9/11. so the heavy police presence this time was not something that we particularly noticed. the promenade was shut down. when it hit, there was an element of surprise. they weren't ready for this. >> how could you be? we're glad you're safe. thank you for sharing your time with us. >> mike is the form director of the national counterterrorism center. good morning to you. i want to talk about security. bastille day. it's a national holiday. crowds gathered along the promenade. this truck went for more than a
7:09 am
mile. as people get in their cars this morning, they should think how far a mile actually is. how could no security stop it before that? >> it's very difficult, matt. the french are very experienced in dealing with large scale events like this. they were just prepared and really overwhelmed by threats during the european soccer tournament that just finished there. i think in this case what we really see is the difficulty for any, even the best prepared security services, to stop a committed individual when you have these enormous crowds of people. it creates a huge vulnerability. the french will look at this to see what they missed but this sort of event creates a vulnerability for anyone in paris, london, or even washington to stop. >> so many people wake up and see this has happened again and they ask themselves, what is a solution here? you're talking about an ideology
7:10 am
that's like a cancer that is spreading and how are you supposed to rectify that now? now that that cat is out of the bag. >> savannah, your analogy to cancer, cancer continues to kill people and we don't give up. we can't despair and say we can't stop it. it requires really targeted treatment in some cases and that means offense, whether it's overseas or in french neighborhoods. it requires defense, better security at events like this. it requires really good education and engagement. that's something the french have struggled with more so than the british or certainly here in the u.s. the french have a disenfranchised muslim population. and the efforts have produced more isolation and more radicalization. we in the u.s. have tried to learn from that.
7:11 am
the french face a very uphill battle right now. >> all the steps you talk about and others talked about to prevent sophisticated attacks like people hijacking airplanes or creating an explosive device, this is a guy with a gun and a truck. >> this is no doubt. this is where isis has surpassed al qaeda in its brilliant simplicity. al qaeda went big. this is much, much harder. that's why isis change from an organization with a hierarchy and planning to a movement that's spread through the use of social media and encrypted communications, makes this an enormous challenge. it will require even deeper engagement with the muslim communities because those are the only communities that will be able to detect that and get early intervention of the cancer. >> michael, thank you very much
7:12 am
as always. >> thanks, guys. the attack in nice prompted donald trump to postpone official announcement of his vice presidential pick but nbc news has learned that it will be indiana governor mike pence. peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. nbc news and multiple other news outlets today reporting that donald trump has selected indiana governor mike pence to be his running mate but trump ever the showman says he's still undecided and after the attack in paris he postponed that official reveal. trump will say when it will happen at some point over the course of this day but family members say it's likely to be this weekend. with french authorities still attending to the dead and injured in nice, donald trump vowed as president he would ask congress to a declaration of war on isis. >> this is war. if you look at it, this is war coming from all different parts
7:13 am
and frankly, it's war and we're dealing with people without uniforms. >> reporter: hillary clinton calling for u.s. to strengthen alliances against terror. >> it's terrible that france has faced too much tragedy and violence and we need to stand with them. >> reporter: trump was forced to postpone his highly anticipated running mate rollout. after touching down thursday at new jersey's airport, indiana governor mike pence's moment delayed. the mild mannered midwestern now holed up at a manhattan hotel. trump tried to maintain the suspense. >> i haven't made my final decision. i have three people that are fantastic. >> reporter: sources with direct knowledge of the choice tell nbc news trump picked pence over chris christie and newt gingrich who in what might be viewed as an effort to regain trump's favor took the candidate's proposed muslim ban one step further. >> we should frankly test every
7:14 am
person here who is of a muslim background and if they believe in sharia, they should be deported. >> reporter: trump and pence disagree on the proposed ban. >> muslims should be banned from the united states are offensive and unconstitutional. >> reporter: pence, a favorite among social conservatives, praised trump this week. >> you know, donald trump understands the frustrations and hopes of the american people like no other american leader in my lifetime since ronald reagan. >> reporter: they deployed mote motorcades to throw reporters off the trail and a political fumble. despite trump campaign staffers touting tim tebow as a speaker, he said it's not happening. >> it's amazing how fast rumors fly. that's what it is. a humrumor.
7:15 am
>> reporter: they wonder if donald trump could change his mind about mike pence. it would be unusual to bring a sitting governor here to new york and make him cool his heels in a hotel before bumpi idumpint the alter. pence has until noon to withdraw his name from a re-election bid in indiana in he wants to make himself available to be trump's vp. >> when you put it that way, you make a persuasive argument. thank you very much. >> let's bring in nicole wallace and mark halperin. guys, good morning to you. if trump does change his mind, it would be awkward. let's just assume it is mike pence. people called this an adult choice. a reasonable choice. a safe choice. what does it tell us about the state of the trump campaign on july 15th, 2016? >> he wants the campaign to be about hillary clinton and to some extent about himself and not about his running mate and his other two options, chris
7:16 am
christie and newt gingrich as we've seen in the last 24 hours on any given day either of them can make this campaign about them and what they say and what they do. i think he was persuaded that going with a safe, responsible choice that also a lot of republicans and conservatives like a lot was the way to help himself win and missing the opportunity to tap two really talented guys who can get a lot of attention. >> i do want to talk more about pence and this choice because it's interesting. can we go back to the process for just a moment. you're a former campaign staffer. what do you make of this? he has a delay. there is a terror attack in nice. we can take him at his word that that's why. but then he goes on and says last night i haven't made up my mind and mentions these other candidates by name. what gives? >> i was told that as of 5:00 last night, he hadn't made a final, final decision. if you watch "the apprentice" it comes down to final minutes of the show that he sort of makes his final -- >> is he trying to preserve
7:17 am
drama? >> i take him at his word. it wouldn't be the first time in the aftermath he altered his course. the day after orlando, he ripped into hillary clinton's record on foreign policy on a speech in new hampshire the next afternoon. i accept that he wanted more focus on this. i think he also welcomed another minute to think this through. >> let's go to this issue we're dealing with this terror attack in nice that underscores a difference between mike pence and donald trump on the muslim ban alone. mike pence says it's unconstitutional and offensive. donald trump has pushed for it. how does this campaign deal with that difference of opinion moving forward? >> there's always difference of opinion when you pick a running mate. >> that's a big one. >> there were big ones between reagan and bush. >> they are going to have to talk about it after every
7:18 am
terrorist attack. >> you're onto something that to me i describe as off brand. pence is so off brand. pence endorsed cruz a couple days before the indiana primary, which was the final primary where trump racked up enough delegates to clinch the nomination. trump is so off the trump brand of saying keep your conservative movement to yourself. i support planned parenthood. trump's whole brand is he's going to make the republican party attractive to people who never voted republican before and pence is as traditional republican as you can get. >> pence's brand is also washington is messed up. washington isn't doing what the people want. that's the main message. >> one of the first to embrace the tea party. >> there are differences between them but if it is pence, anti-washington message will unite them. >> mike pence is sitting in a hotel in new york saying waiting. i got until noon. i got until noon. call me, donald.
7:19 am
call me. mark, nicole, thank you very much. >> let's turn to al for a first check of our weather. >> as we take a look, we can see that we're basically looking at warm, humid weather here in the northeast. we do have heat advisories and heat watches. showers and thunderstorms through the southeast. there is a slight risk for stronger storms in mid plains from oklahoma into nebraska. delightful day in the pacific northwest. even down into southern california. l.a. looking at a high today of 84 degrees. that's what's going on around the country.

we're back now at 7:30. it's friday morning the 15th of july, 2016. these are just a few of the chilling images from the south of france. the images we can show you. a truck plowed through a crowd of people watching holiday firework display in nice. >> a father and son from texas died. sadly, the most recent of a string of terror attacks in france. i think seven in the last 18 months. three of those were with massive loss of life and this morning french officials are declaring three days of national mourning starting tomorrow. >> janet, good morning to you.
7:31 am
>> reporter: such a tragedy for france this morning and for the city of nice. people are walking around shell shocked. the death toll stands at 84 right now and we know that two texans are among the dead. they are sean copeland and his 11-year-old son, brodie. they were here on vacation as so many families were enjoying the fireworks. what has become a tradition here on the french rivera, families, tens of thousands come to watch the fireworks and they were caught in the fire last night. the little league team that brodie plays on posted a message on his facebook page expressing their regret saying we are heartbroken and in shock over the loss of brodie copeland, an amazing son and brother who lit up our lives and sean copeland, a wonderful husband and father. they are so loved. as were all of the victims caught in the fire last night. as people gather here for the
7:32 am
fireworks celebration, in what has been a tradition. been here with my family many times. people gather and there's music and entertainment. many families still waiting for word this morning. matt and savannah, back to you. >> heartbreaking. thank you. we have sean henry here. former executive assistant director of the fbi. sean, good morning. nice to see you. we don't have a claim of responsibility right now although isis sometimes waits several days. but this does fit in with some of the things we've been seeing and hearing from isis online. >> it certainly does. what we hear from isis is fight where you necessarily have to come to syria or iraq to learn to train there because you might be detected. wherever you are, inflict harm on nonbelievers and promote the cause. >> haven't they been called to run down the nonbelievers. >> they have. this happened previously not only in france but here in the united states.
7:33 am
>> so many times after something like this happens, people turn inward and say how should intelligence adjust? how should it be better? with all due respect to intelligence officials doing the best they can under extraordinary circumstances, what does need to improve? how do we need to change our policies to deal with this evolving threat? >> you know, over the last decade, savannah, we were focused on al qaeda, which was always looking for those sensational attacks against iconic targets. targeting the embassies, the trade center, the cole navy ship, now we have a new mindset with isis and others are talking about these attacks and radicalizing people online and it's very difficult for intelligence agencies to intercept communications because they're not evolvinvolved with e ranging kpoe ining conspiracy. >> images started showing up online and most see those images and recoil in horror, others who
7:34 am
are sympathizers of isis see them and they are incited and inspired. >> isis and others will use this for propaganda and use it to recruit people and use it to raise funds. one of the other things it does is help to bring resolve to the western world and those that are civilized to come together, recognize what the threat is, and find ways to try to mitigate it. >> so often when something like this happens far away, we think could it happen here? we know the answer. we saw what happened in orlando. is there any good news in terms of this country, in terms of whether the threat is not as great as it is, for example, in a country like france? >> i think when we look at france and other parts of western europe, we've seen a lot of fighters that have come back and been trained, et cetera. here in the united states, we are always concerned about these so-called soft targets and what do we do to mitigate these threats? there may be changes in heightened security, increased police presence, increased
7:35 am
security checks at certain venues and there may be changes in law because right now under constitutionally protected activity, it's very, very difficult to stop those who are radicalized lone wolves if you will. >> shawn, thank you very much. good to see you. let's get a check of the weather now. al is over at the weather monitor. >> in the northeast and the east coast, we're looking at a lot of heat. we have heat advisories, heat warnings stretching from north carolina all of the way on up into the new york metropolitan area including philadelphia. 15 million people under advisories. heat indexes could be 95 to 100 degrees as we get into the weekend. so for today, it's going to feel like 94 in boston. 95 in philly. 105 in norfolk. that continues into saturday with temperatures anywhere from 5 to 10 degrees above average and sunday from atlanta to new york city out to nashville, temperatures way above average and in fact, we're going to be looking at excessive heat right into next week. big dome of high pressure. huge one covering a good portion

we're back now at 7:41. we have more on the terror attack in france and potential fallout here at home. >> obviously this was aimed at a huge gathering of people in france on a national holiday. there are many gatherings expected in the coming weeks in this country. two national political conventions. one just three days away in cleveland and that is where nbc's hallie jackson is. hallie, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt and savannah. you talk about security preparations here in cleveland, they've been going on for months. at least 3,000 law enforcement officers from all over the country on state and federal levels will be descending here
7:42 am
for next week's convention. as for whether anything has changed after the attacks that we saw overnight, i just got off the phone with a local source here who says it's just too soon to say cautioning that police are prepared for anything. that like after dallas when this question came up previously, law enforcement officers have a heightened sense of awareness. we know that jeh johnson will be here in cleveland today touring the facilities, making sure that everything is in place for next week. again, heightened sense of awareness. ready for what could happen here in cleveland. >> that's the security side of things. let's go to the political side of things. everyone seems to expect that mike pence, the indiana governor, will be tapped by donald trump as a running mate. what more can you tell us? >> reporter: governor pence is well known in indiana conservative circles and tea party circles but maybe less so on that national stage. that's now changing as he is this morning the man in the
7:43 am
spotlight. governor mike pence waking up in new york after a dramatic day in the running mate race. that wild ride introducing him to america with many now asking who exactly is mike pence? >> i'm supporting donald trump because we need change in this country. >> reporter: the indiana governor, a former congressman, who rose to a top house leadership role before winning the hoosier state's top job in 2013. he backed senator ted cruz, not trump, in the gop primary. even while insisting back in may, he would support the republican nominee. are you hedging your bets? >> not in the least. i'm proud to stand with ted cruz in the indiana primary. >> reporter: it's that support for cruz that could help pence convince conservatives to turn out for trump a christian with strong ties to the evangelical group.
7:44 am
his support of a controversial religious freedom law. >> one of the great pieces of the legislative history of the religious freedom restoration act is that it's been a way of bringing people together. >> reporter: while pence and trump are just starting to get to know each other, they haven't always seen eye to eye. pence call the candidate's proposed temporary muslim ban offensive and unconstitutional. and on trade, a split, too. politically not always on the same page but on the personal side, both men appearing often with their families. pence with his three kids and wife, karen, a school teacher. the two married for more than 30 years. pence grew up in rural indiana, went to college in the hoosier state and facing a tough reelection fight at home, the national stage perhaps more appealing with pence stepping into trump's very bright spotlight. and this morning we are hearing from trump's top aide. his chief strategist who just a couple minutes ago said that
7:45 am

8:01 am
>> reporter: yeah, good morning, savannah. last night this street was filled with thousands of people looking up at the fireworks when a truck that's still back there behind the white screen plowed into them at high speed killing dozens. we now know that the driver is of tunisian descent. we don't know who he has links with. this was an act of pure terror. a driver on a killing spree. there were celebrations on this sea front. terror as he drives toward dozens of people. eyewitnesses say he zigzagged from the road to the boardwalk plowing through men, women and children for about a mile. there was panic. thousands scattering running for their lives. >> seen people screaming and shouting. it was horrendous. >> reporter: eyewitnesses recall bodies every ten feet beside dolls and strollers.
8:02 am
as many as 200 were hit by the truck. dozens died. among them, two americans, a father and son from texas, sean copeland and his 11-year-old boy, brodie. the truck was finally stopped by police bullets. the windshield riddled. the driver killed. amid it all, a mother and daughter from california. >> we saw people with blood and realized oh my god. >> they were terrified. we had no idea how close. we didn't know if it was a shooter or multiple people. >> reporter: officials say the driver fired shots from a pistol. he's confirmed as a 31-year-old man from nice, a petty criminal known to police but not to french intelligence. for france's people and its prime minister, a troubling future. we have moved into a new era, he

said. france will have to live with terrorism. president obama sent a message we stand in solidarity with france, our oldest ally. the streets today almost deserted. >> doesn't seem safe anymore in france. >> reporter: there's no claim yet from any terror group. france mourning amid more horror. france has been through a lot in the last year but this was a terrifying new twist here using a large truck as a weapon of war. french security forces had been on high alert for bastille day but they are stretched and no one saw this coming almost literally. matt, savannah? >> bill neely, thank you. in the aftermath of the attack, thousands of people at that celebration raced to get as far away from the scene as they could and a number of americans were caught up in that chaos. we want to turn to christopher
8:04 am
dickey, foreign editor of "the daily beast" and works with us here. high state of alert. state of emergency. everybody was on alert after a string of terror attacks in france over the last 18 months and still nothing could stop this guy with a truck and a gun. what's the mood in france this morning? >> you know, you're always trying to fight the last war. you're always trying to stop the last terrorist attack. what you have seen with al qaeda and the islamic state is they change their tactics all the time. much more imaginative than people give them credit for. they use different techniques. just a few weeks ago somebody representing himself as working with isis killed a policeman and his wife with a knife in front of their 3-year-old son just outside of paris.
8:05 am
we had guns and pistols used with the "charlie hebdo" massacre. it's harder to get all of those weapons. and now the weapon they use is easiest thing to get of all. a truck being driven by a delivery man. he's the one who takes it into this area here on promenade des anglais and kills 84 people. >> president hollande just said the state of emergency that france has been under since the paris attacks might be just about to be able to be wrapped up and now of course he said in light of what's happened in nice, it has to continue. how do the french people feel about their government's response, about the response of french intelligence and police in responding to this new threat?
8:06 am
>> well, you know what they want to do with this state of emergency and with the laws that have been passed over the last year is make it easier for police to interrogate people longer, to hold them longer and interrogate them longer and monitor phone calls and monitor internet traffic basically to use all kinds of invasive techniques that civil libertarians definitely think are a bad idea. the police understand that the only way they can stop these kinds of incidents is through good intelligence. you can't put barriers around everything. you can't stop everyone from driving around july 14th or july 4th celebrations. you can't do everything that's necessary to stop terrorists all the time if you have to stop them at the last minute. you have to stop them much earlier on and that's all about intelligence and intelligence gathering. >> chris dickey who has lived in

9:00 am
♪ >> welcome to "today," friday morning, july 15, 2016. i'm al roker along with tamron and nat. the images out of france. another devastating attack in france happening in nice. thousands of spectate loors out the street celebrating their day of freedom, bastille day, when a
9:01 am
truck plows through a crowd. janet, good morning. >> reporter: al, there is heartbreak and disbelief here in france right now. 17 hours after this terrorist attack and people are still numb. here's what we know. 84 people are dead. at least 18 are critically injured. we're now being told a number of the dead are likely to be children and teenagers. among the dead a father and son from texas. sean copeland and his 11-year-old son, brodie. a little league player. his little league team on facebook extending their condolences to them. people tell a horrifying story of what happened here last night. this truck barreling through the promenade des anglais for a mile. for a mile. some people mistakenly thought the truck driver was lost. he came through the barricade at some point police started to catch up with him. eventually shot deadly police. reports he fired back at them.
9:02 am
he's known now as a 31-year-old french tunisian. he's known to local authorities for petty thefts but at this point it is indicated he was not known to federal authorities here in france or any ties to terrorism. there's been a search of his nice apartment. he lives in northern parts of the city. there was reports a vehicle with explosive inside. this happened during bastille day fireworks. people come here starting really at noon. if you're not here by noon, it's hard to find a parking place. this whole street is turned into a pedestrian walkway. it's barricaded early. families come here. i've been here so many times with my family.
9:03 am
we decided not to come. we watched it from my mother-in-law's house nine miles from here. at this point i will tell you there are hundreds of people gathered here. shell shocked. some of them were here last night. some have just come to see where it all happened. the truck is still on the scene behind me a ways back. it's covered up as is much of the street. it's an active investigation. so much in its infancy. the third major attack for paris in the past 18 months. it's heartbreaking. al, back to you. >> janet, i can hear it in your voice. the emotion that you must be feeling. the empathy for the people there in nice but the fact that there but the grace of god you and your family could have been down there. >> reporter: i have to attribute it to we were just lazy and
9:04 am
didn't want to come down and find a parking space. we always come in july to visit my mother-in-law. kids love it. we stayed up there last night. i feel for the families that made a different decision. >> janet, thank you so much. our prayers and thoughts are with everybody out there. >> absolutely. the reaction from world leaders has been swift as you can imagine. france's president francois hollande spoke to the french people last night calling the attack an act of terror. there have been talk by the president he would perhaps look into lifting the state of emergency before the attack in nice. here at home, president obama issued a statement in part saying on behalf of the american people, i condemn in the strongest terms what appears to be a horrific terrorist attack. our thoughts and praise ayers a with the loved ones and those
9:05 am
killed. we stand in solidarity and partnership with france, our oldest ally as they respond to and recover from this attack. as far as the presidential candidates, donald trump postponed a planned news conference about his vice presidential announcement. trump tweeting my prayers and condolences to the victims and families of the terrible tragedy in nice, france. we're with you in every way. hillary clinton said every american stands in strong solidarity with the people of france and we say with one voice, we will not be intimidated. for a deeper understanding of the events that unfolded in nice, natalie is with evan coleman. >> thank you. evan joins us now. former fbi terrorism consultant and terrorism analyst for us here at nbc. let's talk first about what we know in this investigation and where it stands. are there claims of responsibility yet? an understanding as to who may
9:06 am
be responsible? >> people think about isis but truth is so far we've seen no claim of responsibility from isis. we've seen no claim of responsibility from al qaeda and no claim of responsibility from anyone. in fact, this morning isis issued their usual morning news brief and they made no mention whatsoever of the attack. they didn't claim it. they didn't even say anything about it. does that mean they weren't behind it? we don't know. it's too early to say. you look at the individual who carried this out. individual of tunisian origin from southern france. this certainly does fit the profile of individuals that have been recruited by isis gone over to syria and iraq for training. one person who apparently carried this out. on the other hand, he had access to explosives. that's rare. that's not something you usually see in homegrown terrorist cells. if this was a homegrown terrorist, he was fairly sophisticated about it. we're waiting to see right now if there's anymore information. in terms of the attack itself, both isis and al qaeda have
9:07 am
encouraged their followers to carry out attacks like this specifically within the last two years in propaganda aimed at westerners. we have to see now what comes out in the next 24 hours. >> what's unbelievable is that france for the last 18 months as janet mentioned three attacks and high high alert because the european cup championship just ended there so how can somebody drive down a busy, crowded street and carry out an attack of this nature with just a truck and loaded with weapons to bear. >> it's very difficult to understand. i can tell you from personal experience my father is from nice, i spent a lot of time in this area, i attended these firework demonstrations, there is security there but you have to understand there are thousands of people there. mostly children and old people because fireworks and music display, it's very, very difficult to secure this. it's an enormous soft target. it's not something that i believe would be apparent to someone in syria or iraq but very apparent to anyone from
9:08 am
this area. this is a major community social event that takes place during the summer. every week they have these fireworks displays. they shut down the area in front of the beach. they have thousands of people crowded and they're on the streets sitting in chairs and it's like bowling pins. i hate to say that but that's what it is. this is an individual who knew this area well and knew this target well and given what he did, we can't foreclose the possibility that he did this on his own. it would be unlikely but we can't foreclose that possibility? >> of course you see something like this carried out there and we immediately think that could easily be times square here in new york. crowded with tons of people. a perfect soft target. what do you know about the security situation and is there anything that is of concern right now? >> i can tell you the security in times square is far tighter than anywhere in this area. nice is not considered a terrorist target. it's a resort town. in new york, the security is far
9:09 am
tighter. i think what we have going for us is there are far less american nationals or people living in the u.s. that have been radicalized than in a country like france. we don't know whether the individual who carried out this attack went to syria or iraq. there are a large number of individuals inside france that have been radicalized and some have gone there. some have been radicalized by clerics. some by the internet. the bottom line is that there's a pool of recruits for groups like isis and al qaeda to recruit from both directly and indirectly. so whether or not this was inspired by them directly or whether it was indirectly over the internet or what not, the problem is there are plenty of people for them to latch onto. this is a social problem within france and something that has to be addressed. it's a statement the fact that if you look at all of these attacks, they've all been taking place in two countries which are right next to each other. belgium and france. there's got to be a reason for that. >> what needs to happen to change that situation? what more can the french
9:10 am
government possibly do? as francois hollande talked about lifting the state of heightened security but clearly that's going to stay in place. >> i think number one, i think this threat is not over. i think that we really have to figure out how this individual was radicalized. an issue he went to syria and iraq and came back into the country undetected. that's would not be good or that this person would have been recruited over the internet. it's not an easy battle. ask the u.s. state department. every effort the u.s. state department has undertaken to fight online terrorist radicalization has blown up in their face. we haven't figured out a great solution for that. i don't think they have. we have to see how this plays out. it's not clear yet whether or not this is an individual who is part of a much larger network, a very small network, on his own or a lone wolf. no one has claimed credit. important to emphasize. it looks like isis or al qaeda
9:11 am
but nobody has claimed responsibility. no statement even indicated this is isis inspired. we have to see what comes out in the next 12 to 24 hours. >> evan coleman, thank you for putting it into perspective for us. al is in the orange room with more. >> people have been using social media to express grief and believe it or not also offer help, which is really amazing. basically translated open doors nice offering homes to people needing them somewhere where they need shelter and folks posting pictures of loved ones missing on social media. an account calle called @nicefindpeople. one woman posted about an 8-month-old baby separated from his family in the chaos. she posted a facebook message that said in part, we lost our 8
9:12 am
month old baby in nice. if you have seen him, if you were there, if you picked him up, please contact me. it's not clear what her relationship to the baby was. the post was shared thousands of times. good news, woman later posting they found the baby and a member of the baby's family told media a young woman found him and took him home with her. nbc news has not independently verified this story but if it's true, it's a heartwarming end to what could have been a horrible part to this story. as we look at our weather, another hot day in the east. we have heat warnings, heat advisories from the carolinas up into philadelphia. even new york city and parts of new jersey, 15 million people under some sort of advisory. it's going to be a warm weekend here in the east. temperatures will feel like anywhere from 90 to 105 degrees. same on saturday. continues that way from boston all of the way out to atlanta. nashville on sunday, new york
9:13 am
city, washington, all above normal temperatures. and we don't get a break. next week, huge area of high pressure puts that jet stream up to the north. we'll look at the ridge building and heating up a lot of the country. folks anywhere from 5 to upwards of 20 degrees above average. heat indexes between 110 and good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. don't forget your sunglasses or find a cool spot. another hot and humid day. 94 degrees this afternoon in center city. look at the 90s for the suburbs and the lehigh valley. and steamy conditions, possibly some thunderstorms developing. isolated showers are possible in wilmington, smyrna, and rehoboth. smyrna, 91 degrees. will feel like 100 with the high humidity. upper 80s and low 90s even at the shore with westerly winds, and into the 90s in new jersey. have a great day. >> that's your>> that's your la. we'll be back with more after these messages.

9:18 am
i a lot going on. children. it was, you know, it was a hard couple years there but i'm so grateful. it's such an amazing -- i have this pile of love i saved up for these people. that's something that is an addiction to have that exchange of love where you get up there and you share your story with them and they're singing it back at you and the energy is incredible. >> you know what i love? an 81-year-old woman the front of the stage. >> i recognized her. i think i saw her -- >> that's one of your biggest fans from florida. >> she came here? >> to see you. >> that's crazy. i need to go find her and get a selfie with her. >> i think of generations of young women to older women who have embraced you. >> one of my favorite things about going live, too, unless you're out there doing the songs and you're face to face, it's all kind of happening.
9:19 am
it's just words. when you see them and you see who they are, it's real. it's crazy to see the impact and how they impacted me and given me this crazy life. >> she was singing "hollaback girl". >> seven years since you toured. how has it changed for you? did you have to do anything special to get ready for this? >> i did. i had to learn all of the songs again. i mean, that was crazy. still certain ones and even the new record which i listened to a billion times, there's something about writing a song about your life and then driving to it by yourself in hollywood on the his and makes you -- it's therapeutic. you would think i would know them by heart. i still can't -- that's what's great about live. screwing up and having that moment with people and i don't know. i missed it a lot. i did some no doubt concerts, festivals last summer which was
9:20 am
some of my favorite shows i ever did. they were so intense. i think you don't do something for a while, it's really that much better, you know what i mean? that's what this feels like. i feel even that much more grateful. >> you talk about opening up in your music, that's been part of your story line since we all fell in love with you with "no doubt" telling your story including your breakup of the marriage and now your new love with blake. what is it like as you set to reveal that on paper and then ultimately in song? >> i don't know. i think at first when i did it on "tragic kingdom" it was so naive. i didn't know i could do it. i hadn't written the song and they started coming out. dad, listen to this. you should keep doing that. okay. it made me feel so good to do it. i couldn't believe i had a gift. it was weird. i discovered and had this power suddenly. it feels really incredible to share your story and then it's
9:21 am
like a bunch of -- you sing it. all these little band-aids go over you. it's so comforting. i felt like that was my purpose sort of. i'm honored. >> tear me up over here. >> gwen stefani, thank you so much. you're going to sing one more song for us a little bit later.
